A Country in the Moon: Travels in Search of the Heart of Poland

by Michael Moran
£9.99   paperback  Granta Books (2009)

A Country in the Moon: Travels in Search of the Heart of Poland by Michael Moran Michael Moran gives an insider's view of what was once the largest country in Europe; one what evolved under a succession of brutal invasions, which suffered through the Holocaust and was plunged into communism.
 
This entertaining memoirand meticulously researched cultural journey is a timely celebration of a valiant and richly cultured people, only now returning to the European fold.

"A Country in the Moon is literary travel writing at its best: elegiac, informative and profound, It's probably the best travel book I will read this year."
(Wanderlust)
"Moran is a sensitive, intelligent companion, as able to capture the rapacious spirit and chaotic conditions of modern Poland as he is the mournful, savage ghosts of its past. The result is moving and absorbing."
(Metro)
"There is so much to admire in this well-researched and hugely entertaining book, and so much to learn... A Country in the Moon is s three-star feast."
(Spectator)
